A quantitative study of vulnerabilities in the Medical Internet of Things
Medical objects, small or large, increasingly rely on digital technologies to monitor patients or deliver care. They form a part of our digital critical infrastructure, that can be significantly impacted by cyber attacks. For example, the Wannacry ransomware shut down hospitals in Europe for hours, even days. This presentation will analyze recent vulnerabilities that have affected medical objects, and present findings related to the characteristics of these vulnerabilities. It will then use these findings to propose ideas for improved cybersecurity in the medical IoT.
